Metal Gear Solid 4 Review
By: | November 26th, 2008

The Stealth Action Genre made its debut appearance 20 years ago when gaming god, Hideo Kojima, released Metal Gear for the MSX2. Since then the series has spawned many knock-off titles including Splinter Cell, but none could live up to the Metal Gear legacy. Now, as the series comes to a close, you can’t help but bask in its reflective glory. Is Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots really the revolution we’ve been waiting for?

Lost: Via Domus Review
By: | November 25th, 2008

Warning: This game is for Lost viewers only. Any others who try and partake in it will be hopelessly lost, confused, and angry about wasting their time.

Lost: Via Domus is an action adventure game that goes lightly on the game aspects. Quite simply there isn’t really much of a game to find here. Lost: Via Domus places the player in the shoes of Elliot Maslow, a photojournalist who just happened to be on Oceanic flight 815 and mysteriously becomes an amnesiac. So Elliot sets off on the island to recover his lost memories and figure out what is going on. So begins the mediocre fanfic that is the Lost game.

Gamer Limit Review: Dead Space
By: | November 21st, 2008

deadspace

Dead Space is a third person shooter with an over-the-shoulder camera a la Resident Evil 4.

Boasting polished graphics and absorbing sound, the game aims to put you into an Alien movie (the first two good ones, mind you)!

XBLA: Vigilante 8 Review
By: | November 20th, 2008

I never got to play the original Vigilante 8 on the Playstation 1 back in 1998 so I didn’t have the weight of nostalgia on my back when picking up this arcade release to review. I was looking forward to it as I knew a great deal of people hold the game in high regard. After putting a few hours into the game modes available I can safely say that I am not among the legions of fans.

Finally a truly new, original, adult-oriented game for the Wii, something that’s not a port or a modified retread (I’m looking at you Resident Evil 4 and Umbrella Chronicles). No More Heroes is a magnificent breath of fresh air on a console that is plagued with 3rd party shovel-ware. No More Heroes boasts the unique art-style of Suda 51′s other title, Killer 7, though it thankfully has a different play-style than Killer 7′s on rails shooting.

Xbox 360: Fable 2 Review
By: | November 19th, 2008

Fable 2 is a game of limitless possibilities where each of your choices has some kind of effect on the world around you. At least that’s what Lionhead wants it to be, fortunately this game comes way closer than Fable 1 did.  Fable 2 tries and really succeeds to keep you immersed in the world of Albion for as long as your willing to be.  This game has a ton of social interactions and choices you can make as the player to stretch the gameplay out, but that is my main complaint about the game, you as the player have to work to make the game last any length of time.

Call Of Duty: World At War Review
By: | November 14th, 2008

Everyone knows that the World War II shooter genre is played out more than Soulja Boy’s lame opinion on anything gaming, but that didn’t stop Treyarch from returning to the genre. Treyarch is last known for the huge disappointment known as Call of Duty 3. Well they have been given the reigns to the franchise again, hoping to redeem themselves by fixing their mistakes. Many took that as impossible when it was announced they would return to World War II after Infinity Ward brought modern combat to the series. Infinity Ward gave the franchise a much needed revitalization and breath of fresh air. The perks and prestige levels gave the played out first person shooter genre an RPG feel. Call of Duty 4 was a massive success and now Treyarch is looking to capitalize on that crowd.

PSN: Super Stardust HD Review
By: | November 10th, 2008

Who needs Geometry when you have spaceships?

Super Stardust HD, released on June 15, 2007 in North America, is one of many games in the twin-stick shooter genre that was more or less created by Geometry Wars. Stardust wasn’t the first twin-stick shooter on the PSN, but it’s easily the best. This game hits in all areas, from its gorgeous graphics and driving sci-fi soundtrack to it’s tight controls. When you add expanded game modes through downloadable add-ons and trophy support, this is one of the strongest titles the PSN has to offer.

By: | November 9th, 2008

Released 10th May, in the year 2007 Calling All Cars is Sony`s first major venture into PSN only downloadable gaming and as one might expect being such an early title, it cant compete against some of the PSN`s more recent titles. Saying that, this is a very enjoyable title and at time of release was extremely popular, and you can understand why.
